Textbook Problem

All electric devices are required to have identifying plates that specify their electrical characteristics. The plate on a certain steam iron states that the iron carries a current of 6.00 A when connected to a source of 1.20 × 102 V. What is the resistance of the steam iron? (a) 0.050 0 Ω (b) 20.0 Ω (c) 36.0 Ω

To determine
The resistance of steam iron which carries 6.00A current when connected to 1.20×102V voltage.

Explanation

Given Info: Steam iron carries 6.00A current when connected to 1.20×102V voltage.

Explanation:

Formula to calculate the resistance is given by Ohms law,

R=VI

  • R is the resistance of steam iron,
  • V is the voltage across steam iron,
  • I is the current passes through the steam iron,

Substitute 1.20×102V for V and 6
